The children in Year 2 are incredibly lucky to have the opportunity to swim at the 1610 Sports Centre in Dorchester. Each term a different Year 2 class walks to the leisure centre for their weekly lessons. Children are taught by qualified swimming instructors and make rapid progress.
All the children, even those who may initially be a bit wary of the water, enjoy the sessions and many say it is their favourite part of Year 2. As well as being fun, swimming provides lots of health benefits too and, most importantly, it is a life saving skill.
Year 2 will be swimming on Tuesday afternoons at 1610 starting 18th September. The children will have the opportunity to swim for a whole term.
Meadow 2 – Autumn term
Grayling 2 – Spring term
Skipper 2 – Summer term
To make this a positive and memorable experience it is essential that we have enough adult support to make this happen. If you are available to help in any way (walking to 1610, helping with changing or going in the swimming pool) please contact your child’s teacher and inform the office staff.
